Glory's Dadi rejects Newcastle offer

Perth striker Eugene Dadi has revealed he rejected an offer from defending premiers Newcastle Jets to re-sign with the Glory until the end of the 2009/10 A-League season.

Dadi has been a revelation for the Glory since arriving at the start of the season, netting 10 goals in 16 games in a successful strike partnership with speedster Nikita Rukavytsya.

Newcastle, eager to bolster their attacking stocks for their upcoming Asian Champions League campaign, were eager to recruit Dadi.

The former Ivory Coast international said he was tempted by the one-year deal put to him by the Jets but ultimately chose to stay in Perth, where his wife and son have settled in nicely.

"Hopefully, I'll play another five years with the Glory," Dadi said half-jokingly.

"It would be nice to finish here."

The 35-year-old will depart to Switzerland on Friday for a five-month loan deal with Swiss Super League club FC Vaduz, meaning he will miss Perth's final two games of the season.

Glory coach Dave Mitchell said Dadi's loan move to Switzerland was a win-win situation for both player and club.

"He feels it's better for his body to go play somewhere else and keep fit, it helps the club financially and it helps him financially, so everyone's a winner with this deal," Mitchell said.

"He comes back in June at some point, which is our off-season.

"He's been a professional for many years and he doesn't like having a four-month break, because normally in Europe you play 10 months in the season and our pre-season is rather long and he's not used to that."

The Glory will also be without Rukavytsya for the final two games of the season after the 21-year-old, who is contracted for next season, headed to the Netherlands for a trial with FC Twente.

"He's a good kid and hopefully he'll do well," Mitchell said.

"If he wants to move on the club will get reward for that and he'll have a professional career."

Dadi has been a crowd favourite since arriving in Perth and is set to launch his own clothing label in Australia when he returns later this year.

The Glory are also keen to capitalise on Dadi's marketing potential as the club attempts to boost crowd numbers, which have been below 10,000 for all but one home match this season.

"He's a bit of a character," Mitchell said.

"You just look at the guy and he's got style and the fans have embraced him, so that's great."

Although Newcastle were unsuccessful in their pursuit of Dadi, they have reportedly snared Glory defender Nikolai Topor-Stanley for the next two seasons.
